​The Alabama Crimson Tide under Nick Saban have been perhaps the most dominant dynasty in the history of college football, and have been practically unbeatable year after year, despite the constant inherent roster turnover in college sports. So hiring a disgraced coach that's been described as a "narcissistic sociopath" makes sense, right?


Former Maryland coach D.J. Durkin, who ​lost his job amid the scandal surrounding the tragic death of Jordan McNair on the practice field, has been retained by Alabama in a consulting role, because evidently Nick Saban's moral compass has some trouble finding the right direction.

This is continuing a troubling trend in college football, where coaches who foster cultures of abuse lose their jobs only to be scooped up somewhere else. Another recent example includes former Illinois ​​coach Tim Beckman ending up on UNC's staff, and ​former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze recently being hired by Liberty.

Saban and the Crimson Tide should be ashamed of themselves for this hire. Have you no respect for the memory of Jordan McNair? Or is it all about winning, no matter the moral implications?​​


I shudder to think how Nick Saban would answer that question.
